Because he likes hot food, I got him a selection of pepper seeds from Sandia Seed Company located in New Mexico!
So Michael started the seeds in those little starter pots - not just the peppers, but some tomatoes and zucchini, too. I hope to pick up some herbs from a nursery close to Windy Knolls - I'm thinking basil and oregano (since they seem to be Mike's favorites) and parsley; Mike mentioned mint, too. I'd really like to try growing rue, which isn't common at nurseries, but I'm pretty sure I can find starter plants on the internet.
It isn't a whole lot, but its a great place to start! It will feel good to play in the dirt this summer - I just have to remember my sun block!
